How to Help someone with PTSD
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is estimated to affect around 1 in every 3 people who have a traumatic experience.
It often goes undiagnosed because it doesn’t always develop immediately after the event, sometimes not becoming apparent until years afterwards.
It goes without saying that it’s extremely difficult for sufferers, but it’s also difficult for their loved ones who may not always know how best to respond to them.
